Filing a claim is not always the right decision. Before you do so, make sure to call Allied Restoration for a free consultation.
We work with you to assess the damage and develop a comprehensive plan to mitigate the damages and restore your home to it’s best condition. We use the latest equipment and technology to dry your home and remove the water completely. We not only conduct water damage restoration and flood restoration services, but we check for mold or other damages caused by water. We set up dehumidifiers and industrial air scrubbers to clean the air of any potential mold spores.
After our initial response to water damages and dry out the property, we move on to replacing and repairing the damages. Your insurance not only covers the dry down, but also the replacement and reconstruction of damaged property due to the water damage loss. Our team of construction experts take over and guide you through the reconstruction process to bring your property back into pre-loss conditions as soon as dry down is complete.
The time that water damage repairs take to complete will depend on the time it takes for the material affected to dry up. A safe time to assume is 72 hours on an average basis for 1 room to be dried out and ready for reconstruction followed by 1-2 weeks for the actual water damage repairs.
We understand that most property owners just want life to go back to normal after a disaster, but every repair project will vary depending on the complexity of the damage and the building materials affected. In some cases, the full extent of the problem and extends further than the visual water damage once walls are removed and mold is found.
If the house was built before 1985, then asbestos testing must be done before any walls are opened up for drying. After testing, results take around 24-48 hours to receive. If results come back negative, then a restoration company like Allied Restoration can start to dry the water damaged property immediately. However, If the testing results come back positive, then an abatement company (specialized license to remove asbestos) has to be referred in and then they will perform the work required to dry out the property.
After the water damaged property is dried out, the restoration contractor can begin repair work.
